BIOL 141 Sensory Systems (CORE—Scientific Thought/Non-Laboratory Course)

(3 credits/3 class hours) 

The vast outer world is known to each of us only as a complex internal representation created by our brains with inputs from our sensory organs. This course explores how sensory systems relay information about our environment to the mind. Students will learn about the biological mechanisms supporting each of our five senses. Topics will include how we sense pain and the neurobiological aspects of language. In each section the class will explore current research.
